I wonder why Consider Cole is not included in this list. He was a resident of Bethel before the war. He was born in Greenwood, but the Greenwood roll of Civil War soldiers does not mention him either.

Consider Cole served throughout the war. He was captured at one point, but upon parole he rejoined his unit. He died just before the war's end and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Lapham portrays him very unfavorably, essentially calling him Bethel's town drunk. Maybe this is why no one wants to claim him. But he did volunteer for service and gave his life for his country. Someone should acknowledge his sacrifice.

Lapham was not charitable when it came to intemperance.

I'm not sure where Consider initially enlisted, but here's what I have on his service:

CONSIDER COLE enlisted October 4, 1861, in Company F, Tenth Maine Infantry; mustered in October 5, 1861; mustered out May 7, 1863. Re-enlisted from Paris, February 27, 1864, for three years' service in Company B, Thirty-second Maine Infantry; mustered in at Augusta, March 10, 1864; transferred to Company B, Thirty-first Maine Infantry, December 12, 1864; reported missing, July 30, 1864, near Petersburg, Virginia; died of disease, April 7, 1865, at Alexandria, Virginia.
